As fast-moving digital trends continue to impact companies and reshape entire industries, the whole notion of digital transformation is commanding the boardroom’s attention. Whether its refining processes with security, mobility, analytics, and cloud technology or creating an entirely new business model, every executive knows that opportunity abounds to the brand that is first to market with innovative, digital-based products and services.
Although digital transformation is being approached with such fervor, a recent IDC survey revealed that only 25% of CIOs are confident in their progress in driving new digital revenue streams. From their perspective, the enterprise can only create value if their digital technology is up and running as well as productive – but more important, mitigate disruptions and resolve issues before anyone – especially the customer – notices. This quite a tall order for any IT team. According to IDC research manager Elaina Stergiades, “While the need for businesses to digitize quickly continues to grow, the path that must be taken is becoming increasingly complex, resulting in the need for enhanced support.”
A reimagined digital enterprise requires reimagined support
The road to market relevance is paved with reimagination in how the company operates, evolves, and protects itself from new and disruptive competitors. Time is the enemy – and although digital transformation is a journey, it cannot be traveled in the slow lane.
To accelerate the transition to a digital business model, companies could benefit from on-premise and cloud expertise, as well as hands-on, extended support.
